Them’s Fightin’ Words

Mike McCarthy finally did it. After taking blame for the playcalling, hinting at execution errors, and taking blame for the offense’s inconsistencies, McCarthy finally did it:
“I would say Aaron Rodgers’ season is probably much in line with the season we had as an offense. We’ve been a little bit up and down at times. If you just look at our point production, it’s reflected in that…I think (Rodgers) has had a good year, but it’s time for him and the offense to put their best foot forward when we go to Philadelphia.” Taken from this JS online article. http://www.jsonline.com/sports/packers/112836809.html
Them’s fightin’ words. How frustrated is he? By the pass, there are generally two strategies that beat the cover two: short, 5-9 yard completions underneath the coverage and hitting the holes between the safeties and backers and corners. McCarthy called plenty of both during the course of the game. The result: on short throws, the Driver fumbled, Jones ran a sloppy route, B-Jax and Jennings dropped passes to keep the drive going. On the latter, Bulaga held, Jennings and Jones dropped passes, max protect broke down before three Mississippi, and Jennings dropped a touchdown. McCarthy’s not taking the blame anymore. He called a good game. He had a decent game plan. He called some nice plays and designed some beauties. But College whiffed on a max protect, Rodgers threw a duck to a beautiful play design, and Jennings/Jokes/Driver/Jackson couldn’t hold onto first downs.
McCarthy to the offense: I’m not taking blame for this one.
Watching the game, I was impressed with the Chicago defense. Watching it again, I was more disappointed in the Packers offense. And it looks like Coach McPawsitive was too. And he’s not taking it for them this time. Let’s hope it lights a fire under them this week.
